Another quick update
27th August 2010
I have grabbed Belle's laptop for a few minutes and thought I would post a real time update.
I feel like Ziggy Stardust "Here I am, sitting in my tin can" but far from being far above the world we are stuck in Gloucester Docks with an in flood Severn pounding away at the lock gates. We are told that the river is in Amber right up to Stourport and it may drop tomorrow, but more likely the day after. Finer weather has returned so hopefully things will improve before long.
This is a major pain with me being due back at work on Wednesday. Cathryn - sorry! Not as good as excuse as volcanic ash but just as effective.
Just our luck in a dry summer and the Leeds Liverpool closed due to water shortages.
Having said that, Gloucester is an interesting place so we will make the most of our extended stay.
